For ultimate convenience (with ocean views!) we definitely encourage you to stay on the island! We recommend guests stay in and around the main village of Oneroa including the suburbs of Matiatia, Little Oneroa, Blackpool, Church Bay, Surfdale, Palm Beach, and Ostend (see map below) which are only a few minutes drive from Mudbrick.
Mudbrick also offers a range of accommodation including their onsite Luxury Cottages (perfect if you just want to stumble to bed at the end of the night!), their Vintage Cottage in Oneroa and their Settler's Hut in Oneroa.
